Now that they're broken in, they are a pure joy to listen to.
The bass is clearer after the break-in period (20-30 hours).
They're noticeably better than the Sony model I was using before.

I'm having the hardest time deciding between the 555's (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/cus...views.start=31) and the Shure E2c's (http://www.amazon.com/Shure-E2c-Soun...&s=electronics).

I know it's mostly up to a personal preference of over-ear vs. in-ear, but I'd love to hear any opinions.

No better headphones, but definitely better earbuds.

Mine arrived just after Christmas. So far I'm loving them.

Probably going to be 4 soon. I'm thinking about picking up these, I really need some good small headphones to take to the gym at work.

Not counting the Oregon Trail thread, right?


How much of a commission are you making from Sennheiser?

They just came yesterday! Obviously, they haven't been able to 'break in' yet, but so far, they're incredible. Besides being uber-comfortable, the sound is amazing. I deleted Joshua Tree from iTunes and re-ripped it at 320kbps. Streets is . You can distinctly, clearly hear that Edge is playing with an upside-down Herdim pick. Bono sounds as if he's standing alone in the middle of a vast, empty room pouring his guts out, with this burst of music coming from either side of him. I'm picking up new qualities to sounds that I'd known before, plus hearing new sounds I'd never heard. So many extra layers in Streets. Extra percussion----an almost silent high-hat, it sounds like---in ISHFWILF. I listened to the "Mountains and Deserts Platinum Edition" bootleg, and the lifelike grit in Bono's voice is breathtaking.

So much more to discover!

On RHMT now. The intro is now kick-ass. Shyte! Just heard something different in Edge's backing vocals (and can now distinctly hear Lanois on backing vocals...maybe I just didn't pay attention before, but it's pretty clear now).

Get 'em.
